WORKSTREAM 2: MANUAL HANDLING
Incorrect manual handling is one of the main causes of workplace injury. We are actively working on a number of projects in this field and will provide details soon. One of our first activities was to bring an injury prevention programme to the industry.
ShopCare is proud to support the First Move Manual Handling Injury Prevention programme, aimed at reducing workplace injuries.
The programme was developed by Provention's founder Alison Richmond - a Physiotherapist with many years experience implementing effective manual handling and injury prevention strategies across a range of industries.
ShopCare has made this programme available, at no cost, to warehouse and merchandising teams in the New Zealand grocery industry.
We encourage all retail-associated businesses in New Zealand to take advantage of this simple, easy to use tool.
